Beer Break in Osnabrueck
We've featured quite a few PechaKucha Night posters over the past few weeks, but now we turn our attention to another PKN tradition: the beer break. The above image was used at the recent PKN Osnabrueck Vol. 2 during the aforementioned mid-session breather.
20-Second Beer Break
One of the most sacred of PechaKucha Night traditions is of course the "Beer Break," but Kelly O'Keefe introduced a new concept during her presentation at PKN Portsmouth Vol. 2: the 20-second beer break. Indeed, celebrate!
BEFORE AFTER: Let's Build a Better Canterbury
PechaKucha Night in Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead sends us word on the following project she's been working on, "BEFORE AFTER: Let's Build a Better Canterbury." Over the past few months I have been working on a project initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects that looks at what we want our region to look like after the 4 September Canterbury Earthquake. BEFORE AFTER: Let's build a better Canterbury takes the form of a public exhibition and discussion series at Christchurch Art Gallery during February and March. The earthquake has elevated the public awareness of our built environment and we believe this to be an ideal opportunity to engage the public in a dialogue around creating a better and more liveable region. The effects of the Canterbury Earthquake have given us all a chance to step back and assess the direction that the Canterbury region is taking and it is only with public engagement and input that we can create a better, more sustainable and liveable region. The exhibition will run from February 12 to March 20, and you'll find more details on the project's official website.
David Foster is a creative from West Michigan, and as you'll see in his hilarious presentation, he's got a thing for beards. Let him guide you through the complexities of beards in today's society. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Grand Rapids Vol. 2.

A Tour of Koszalin, the Final Word on Beer, All With Accordion Accompaniment
Presentations Today's two presentations come your way from Koszalin and Dayton. The one from Koszalin is by none other than PKN Koszalin organizer Gall Podlaszewski, and was done as part of our Global Cities Week. So follow Gall as she talks about her city (in Polish), PechaKucha-style. From Dayton, we get beer afficionado Max Spang who in "What the Hell Is Beer?" will go to great lengths to prove just how much he loves beer (and he's not alone). Posters On the poster front today, we've added three new ones, including posters for the upcoming collaboration between PKN Istanbul and PKN Yerevan (which this time, is an invitation-only event -- pictured above is the poster from the Yerevan side), and the poster for tonight's PKN Taos Vol. 6, celebrating "the remarkable women of Taos." Photos We've started sharing more and more event galleries on our official PechaKucha Night Flickr account -- in the past it was only used for our Tokyo events -- and here are the latest photosets that have been added. Above, a shot from this month's PKN Panjim Vol. 2, followed by a look at PKN Washington Vol. 17.PKN Regensburg Vol. 8 [Flickr]PKN Panjim Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Washington Vol. 17 [Flickr]PKN Toronto Vol. 15 [Flickr]That Toronto set only has 2 photos, but the accordion player you see pictured is Ben Harvey, and he has performed at both Vol. 14 and Vol. 15.

Slides and Beer: Can't Beat 'em!
Our friends in Nebraska have written a piece about PKN Omaha in the Omaha Magazine, here's a little excerpt from it: Guests in Omaha pack places like Blue Sushi and The Slowdown to capacity in order to hear these sometimes witty, sometimes inspiring, sometimes awkward, but always highly individual presentations. Slides can be confusing, occasionally distasteful, and often beautiful. Speakers can and do discuss the design of anything and everything, including fashion, architecture, pottery, video games, prosthetics, car overhauls, and Native American heritage. Over the past five years that Omaha has been an official PechaKucha city, 179 people have braved the intimidation of public speaking to add their voices to the quarterly event, with anywhere from eight to a dozen speakers a night. To see the full article, head on over to Omaha Magazine. (photo credit: Bill Sitzmann)
